On 20 January 2019,Ms Leo presented with rectal bleeding. On examination, a palpable mass was noticed;therefore,she underwent multiple investigations, which revealed 6mm of mass on the left latral wall of rectum. Further histopathology report confirmed colon cancer. She was reffered to general surgery consultant and suggested colonoscopy as there is no evidence of metastasis.
Today, while preparing for surgery, she expressed concerns regarding problems with stoma and how to cope up in daily life. She was explained about pre-operative and post-operative management including prevention of infection.
